Palasa 1978 Movie Review
Starring: Rakshith, Nakshatra, Jenny, Raghu Kunche, Thiruveer, and Others
Palasa 1978 is all about the suppression of lower caste people by upper caste and how the lower caste people began a revolution. Ranga and Mohana (Rakshit) are two brothers from the lower caste. Mohana’s love interest in Nakshatra. Like in every village, this village too has two heads Shavukaru and Chinna Shavukaru (Raghu Kunche). All is not fine between these two. The rest of the story is all about how situations, politics, greediness changed the lives of these people and how they ended up finally.
Most of the film runs around four characters – the Villain Brothers and the Hero Brothers.
Director Karuna Kumar seems to be talented. Firstly, it is a routine story but he intelligently packed it in a small town and 1970-80s period. Moreover, his attention to detail right from the Srikakulam slang to the locations is authentic. There are some good scenes right from the start to the end which makes his work special but the predictability and slow pace come as speed-breakers in the second half.
The first half of the film is impressive with gritty action sequences and some excellent dialogues. There are some moments that work well and further, the interval block is intriguing. However, the movie loses its fizz in the second half. Except for the climax and a couple of moments, it is totally predictable. Finally, Palasa 1978 is an honest attempt. It falls short due to that Second Half but still has its moments. However, that goes with a caution that the film is only for those who like raw films and the cuss words will definitely not augur well with the family audience.
